SIMMONS COLLEGE MICROCOSM 

"THROUGH OUR EYES 2003" 




Simmons College 

300 The Fenway 

Boston, MA 02115 




www.simmons.edu 



On behalf of the Simmons College 

Microcosm Yearbook staff we 

present the Class of 2003 with... 



Through Our Eyes 2003 



To the class of 2003~ 

The Microcosm staff has been 
hard at work this year to put 
together a book worthy of pre- 
senting to you. Your past years 
at Simmons have been filled 
with laughter, tears, work, and 
of course play. We hope we 
have put together a book that 
captures the true essence of 
Simmons... Your Life! You were 
once that nervous and timid first 
year (even if it was only for a 
day) and now you are preparing 
to go out into the real world. As 
you look through this viewbook 
of your Simmons experience we 
invite you to relive some of your 
favorite times through the years. 
Congratulations Class of 2003, 
this is your year as seen 
"Through Our Eyes"! 
Best of luck in the future, 
-The Microcosm Staff-

Dearest Lucia, 

It may take a long time, but eventually a women will 
discover that life at its best is hard. 




There will be good days and bad days, 
Victories, defeats and disappointments. 




She will learn that it does not pay to be overly sensitive and that 
many things should be overlooked and readily forgotten, and hard 
work will determine that variance and degree of success. 




We love you Lucia 

you're our shinning light! 

Thanks for being you, 

you are the best! 

Molto Amore and Bacio

Today you leave— an extraordinary girl not afraid to 
dream aloud. 

To fulfill life's purpose, you have to answer when 
you're called. So don't be afraid to face the world 
against all odds. 

Keep the dream alive— don't let it die. If something 
deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don't stop, 
and never give up on you. 

Remember, every victory comes in time. 

Work today to change tomorrow. 

It gets easier. Who's to say you can't fly? 

Every step you make will take you closer to your 

destination. 

Sometimes life can place stumbling blocks in your 

way, but you have to keep the faith; and reach down 

and bring what's deep inside your heart to the light. 

It's all inside of you— you have everything you need 
to keep the dream alive. 

Love always, 

Mom & Grandma
